Topics

So you have an idea? Congratulations, that’s the first step of many that you will need to take on the way to realizing your vision!

Already giving up or finding yet another excuse to do it later? Persistence should be the first word that comes to your mind when you wake up.

You have thought and talked about it for the last few years? Well, you are still 1% there. It’s time to take a serious look at your idea and figure out how to move it forward.

You want to do it on your own? The best thing you can do is find yourself a co-founder or collaborator. A trusted partner will help you come to a better understanding of the path to execution, and will help you see the wins and losses more clearly.

  • Not sure what technologies are right for your project? Let’s look at your project’s needs and figure it out together.
  • You’ve built a prototype and the idea doesn’t seem to be viable anymore? Let’s talk pivot.
  • What’s your growth plan? You need to be able to scale your technology platform but also the business around it. How will you move it forward?
  • Do you want to own the business forever? Do you want to sell out? Do you want to get huge?
  • Let’s talk about your exit strategy. IPO, private enterprise, buyout – they are all options you need to understand to ensure you’re growing the business in a strategic fashion.

A startup is like a marriage – it’s sexy at first, but then takes a lot of work to keep everyone happy.

Context, team, timing and just a little bit of luck – let’s look at what has made other businesses work and apply it to you!
